24 hours later, 6 meters is still open.
Forget 80 and 40 meters, 6 meters is where the action is:

Yup, I can confirm that!  I made several AM contacts on 50.4 over the past few days.  It has been fun!  C'mon folks, get your Gonset, Ameco, Clegg, or whatever out of the closet and call CQ!  People are responding to my CQs; but there are a good number of stations monitoring and no one calling CQ!

I called CQ till I was blue in the face. Ohio must be a black hole.

Hearing no beacons except K8MMM at 50.010

You have to watch the prop maps to coordinate when you operate and might be successful. At roughly 8:30 PM tonight neither you or I(NJ) have any Sporadic E propagation. But, many other parts of the U.S. - WOW!

It has been fun!  The prop map has been a valuable tool.  We are experiencing great openings!  In all cases though, I am not hearing ANYONE calling CQ on 50.4.  All stations are responding to me with "I was listening and heard you calling CQ".

Finally some good action in Ohio. North/South path seems good. Will be calling CQ on 50.400 AM in 5 minutes from EN91gd.
